Appointments with Guidance Counselors

Students must make appointments to meet with their guidance counselor. Scheduling of appointments must be done before school, during lunch, and after school. In order to leave a class for an appointment, the student must show the teacher a signed appointment notice. Unless students have an appointment notice or are sent for from the counseling office, teachers will not excuse them from class.

If your guidance counselor is not available, you are welcome to contact another counselor for help with a specific need.
